Tornado MAD-81s hovercraft is 2 person hovercraft.
MAD-81s is designed for best performance possible. Simple
hovercraft design, high weight to power ratio, duct outflow
optimized with flow straighter makes this hovercraft very powerful
and fast and ideal for personal use as well as hovercraft racing.
Tornado MAD-81s hovercraft, can be used for recreational and
personal use, ideal for a rent a hovercraft business as well.
Hovercraft is impossible to sink, so can go on open waters as well,
since hovercraft design includes large buoyancy chamber filled
with floatation material. Tornado MAD-81s hovercraft is impossible
to sink when engine is off, so hovercraft can be used for fishing
and hunting as well.
Simple hovercraft design, competitive hovercraft price, low cost
maintenance, reliable in all weather conditions, short hump speed
time, are just few reasons to chose our new Tornado MAD-81s
Tornado MAD-81s is available with ultra light aircraft engines from HIRTH and light para-glide
state of art engines from POLINI.
Powerful ultralight aircraft HIRTH engine options: 2702 or 2703
Economic super light para-glide POLINI engine options: THOR 200 or THOR 250
All engines installed on MAD-81s hovercraft use MECHANIC gearbox, so you will have no problems like
appears daily on hovercraft that are using belt transmission. Engines with mechanical gearbox are working
with 100 % reliability in all weather conditions for ages.
Have in mind that 2 stroke engines run on much higher RPM than 4 stroke engines and the smallest 200
ccm THOR engine with only 18 kg complete weight is comparable with any 60 hp 4 stroke engine by thrust
power produced, but such 4 stroke engine has minimum 800 ccm or more and weights much more than 60
Fuel consumption of 200 ccm THOR is nearly 5 liters per hour or less.
More power, lighter hovercraft, less consumption, more reliability, more fun with POLINI. So here is where
we start, going to higher power that is flying ultra light aircraft - engines from HIRTH up to 55 HP
(comparable to 100 HP 4 stroke engine output, but two times or more lighter)
Why to chose 2 stroke option on your hovercraft read here - the logic of 2 stroke engines from HIRTH
MAD-81s hovercraft we also sell in KIT form.
Our hovercraft KITs are ideal for homebuilders of a
hovercrafts who wish to build hovercraft by themselves and
wish to install various types of engines. We recommend no
less than 30 HP and no more than 60 HP engines to be
installed on MAD-81s hovercraft KITs.
We manufacture and sell hovercraft.
